    What to Expect
    Mount Dajti is a mountain and national park in central Albania, to the east of Tirana. Its highest peak is at 1,613 m (5,292 ft). In winter, the mountain is often covered with snow, and it is a popular retreat to the local population of Tirana that rarely sees snow falls. Its slopes have forests of pines, oak and beech, while its interior contains canyons, waterfalls, caves, a lake, and an ancient castle.

    After reaching Dajti Express cable car you will start walking towards the Cherry Pass (Qafa e Qershise) who divides two peaks; Dajti and Maja e Tujanit. The trail leads to the peak of Tujani (1,580 m), which is the highest point that can be reached by foot. From the peak, you can enjoy the beautiful panorama of Lake Bovilla locked between the mountains and the remote highlands of Tirana.

    Arriving at the bunker is quite an exciting experience, as you go through a long, dark tunnel in the hillside that leads you to the entrance on the side of a still-active Albanian military base. Once you're inside the bunker itself, you can wander through the furnished rooms intended for the communist elite as they faced the invasion that so terrified them. Elsewhere you'll find a very detailed history of modern Albania, beginning with the 1939 Italian invasion and ending with the overthrow of communism. The display arguably brushes over the true horrors of Hoxha's Stalinist regime, while at least recognizing them, and there are some fascinating documents and photographs, including a video of Enver Hoxha's 1985 state funeral. Other highlights include the enormous Assembly Hall, the main social centre of the bunker, as well as the private chambers of other senior officials. Bunk'Art is an incredible place and promises to grow with the opening of further rooms and addition of more displays in the near future.

    The tour was great. The cable ride to Mt Dajti was scenic. The hike was hard for me, I have to ask my tour guide to go back. The hike is not for the faint of heart as the climb was stiff. Also the visit to Bunk Art was included which is a very interesting place to go to. Overall
